Family and Relationships Research Network of Missouri

The Family and Relationships Research Network of Missouri (FARR-net) is composed of faculty, students, and research and extension specialists affiliated with the University of Missouri System. FARR-Net research engages diverse families in all stages of life on important relational processes such as harmony, conflict, resilience, interpersonal violence, positive parenting, and child development.

Our scholars are engaged in work promoting the quality of life for Missouri families. By participating in our research, you are helping us learn more about close personal relationships and improving the lives of youth, families, and relationships over the lifespan. We also directly use this research to provide information to schools, policy makers, organizations, and community members to improve the lives of Missourians.
